Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (17)

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
Welcome to another weekly recap and StS. I had an excellent week!! I tried to make my vlog quick, but it didn't happen. And the kiddo was pushing it today so I had to keep telling her to knock it off (well the past week actually, but that's besides the point) I had already re-recorded the video 4 times and she just came out of time out. She had been throwing things and jumping on the couch so I was out of patience. I didn't feel like recording my StS for a 5th time so excuse me telling her to chill out a few times. Anyways, enough rambling.

Weekly Recap

  • Some variation of Onyx/Onyx teasers by Jennifer L. Armentrout - Got tons of these! Almost 20! I am so excited about this since she is one of my favorite authors!!
  • On the Island Excerpt - Yes!! I did have an excerpt for it on my blog. Twice I think actually. Love that book so much!!
  • The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines - Loved this book!! The Vincent Brothers too! You should read them if you haven't already!
  • Anna #3 Kendare Blake - Sorry guys!! I wish there was going to be another too, but it was only a 2 book series.
I had a ton of reviews this week. I am surprised at how many. I normally have about 4, but never 6 in a week. I think it's going to be pretty much like that for a while. I have tons of September and October review books and tours!! Leave me a link to your post and I will check it out, probably on Monday since hubs doesn't like when I am on the computer on Sunday (family day).

    1. Thanks chick!! I think the kiddo is just going through another "test mom" phase to see how far she can push and get away with it. I ended having to take away some of her favorite toys to get her to chill out.

  2. Yay for Percy Jackson, Crewel, Undeadly, and Storm! I'm very curious to see what you think of Crewel and Undeadly, so I hope they're good! Enjoy!(:

    1. I really enjoyed Percy Jackson! I don't know why I never thought to read the series before, but I will definitely be reading the rest of it.

  3. Aww I'm so sorry the kiddo's being frustrating! :( Sometimes kids go through these weird phases where you want to see how far you can push your mom. I've been there and it's not the best place, but sometimes it's also for attention. o.O Yeah, usually that happens and you can't really do anything about it. I have no idea what goes through my mind when I do that -.- But you got awesome books! I totally love all your bookmarks and swag! I have a whole pile sitting on my table and I've been itching to get rid of it >.< Enjoy!

    1. She is just being so moody lately. She is being a little better now. I think it was just time for her to go though another "push mom's button" phase.

  4. All of these books are so exciting! Especially Cinder and The Lightning Thief! And oh goodness Moonglass. I'm quite curious about Crewel.

    I also kind of want to flail over ALL THE AUDIOBOOKS. I love seeing audiobooks get love.

    Happy reading :-)

    1. I love audiobooks! Cinder was a really good one. At first the voice bothered me, but after a few chapters I felt like it was the perfect voice for the story. I am excited to read Crewel and I have heard that Moonglass is really great.

  5. Hmmm -- I can't watch your vlog -- I think my computer has been telling me I need to update Flash and maybe it wasn't kidding. Better get on that!

    Ha -- my family complains when I'm on the computer. High maintenance, they are :)
    Great books this week! Loved Cinder and Crewel and Moonglass.
